Hi!
I'm Alberta.

I am an Italian illustrator, currently based in London, UK.

 

Rumour has it that I made my first drawing aged 18 months...

It sure is that as a child I used to prefer sitting on my own, drawing with chalk pastels on the floor of the playground, rather than playing ball games with my school mates.

Nature and animals feature in most of my drawings - my love for them comes from my childhood summers spent in the beautiful mountains of South Tyrol, among cows and marmots and Haflinger ponies, and fir tree woods (where I used to build little tree bark houses for spiders). 

With my art, I wish to inspire young minds to use their imagination and creativity to initiate change and innovation, and to live in harmony with the planet and each other.

I have degrees in Art and Theatre Studies and in Motion Design, and I have studied illustration with Svjetlan Junakovic, Carll Cneut and Claire Alexander.

In my spare time I love traveling, running in the park, and baking bread and focaccia.
